Leveraging Blob Inventory Report for Calculating Storage Costs in Azure
As businesses move to the cloud, understanding and managing cloud storage costs become increasingly important. To assist in this effort, Microsoft Azure offers the Blob Inventory Report. This report can be used to track and optimize blob storage costs across the entire organization. In this blog post, we will discuss how to leverage the Blob Inventory Report to calculate storage costs in Azure.What is the Blob Inventory Report?
The Blob Inventory Report is a feature of the Azure portal that allows users to analyze and manage storage costs in Azure. The report provides a comprehensive view of all the blobs in an Azure storage account and provides detailed information such as blob type, size, creation date, and access frequency. This information can be used to track storage costs and identify areas where storage costs can be optimized.Using the Blob Inventory Report to Calculate Storage Costs
The Blob Inventory Report can be used to calculate storage costs in Azure. To do this, the user must first select the Azure storage account for which the report will be generated. Once the storage account is selected, the user can then select the blobs and containers that should be included in the report.After the blobs and containers are selected, the user can then use the report to calculate the storage costs. This can be done by manually tallying the total size, type, and access frequency of each blob. The total cost of the storage can then be calculated by multiplying the total size by the cost per gigabyte for the particular type of blob.
The Blob Inventory Report is a powerful tool for understanding and managing storage costs in Azure. By leveraging the report, users can track and optimize their storage costs and ensure they are getting the most value out of their storage investments.
